We are getting older
Problem: Public Transport System

The reality is even worse than what it seems, so here a few solutions to battle this issue.

Solution Number 1: The senior citizens face a lot of trouble in boarding and getting off the bus, the conductors or drivers are expected to guide them.

Solution Number 2: They can be guided on how to walk and hold inside the bus, so that the senior citizens are prevented from hurting themselves.

Solution Number 3: The bus must stop close to the curb.

Solution Number 4: The transport system must react to the demographic changes and be adapted to the senior citizen’s needs.

Solution Number 5: There should be proper initiatives from governing bodies regarding projects for older persons to understand their needs, wishes, fears and normal handicaps/ disabilities.
